Course Description

Want to Be a Screenwriter

Have you ever considered writing a screenplay? Do you have an unfinished script or the seed of an idea tucked away? If so, it's not too late to learn the fundamentals of screenwriting: research, style, structure, theme, plot and character development, proper screenplay format (as dictated by the Writers Guild of America), screenwriting software choices...just to name a few. The class will also include hints on finding an agent or manager, getting your script into the hands of producers, and the proper way for new writers to market their scripts. You won't become a polished screenwriter in this three-hour class, but when you leave, you will possess the necessary resource materials to assist you on your journey.
